Ingredients

  • 2 "eggs" (2 tablespoons ground flaxseed and 6 tablespoons of water)
  • 3 bananas (mashed)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable or canola oil
  • Juice from two oranges
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 4 tablespoons of Vocoa cocoa mix
  • 1 cup of chopped walnuts

Process

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and line baking sheet with parchment paper or grease with coconut shortening.

Step 2

Mix ground flaxseed with water. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes to allow to thicken.

Step 3

Combine mashed bananas, sugar, oil, orange juice and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add oats. Add chilled ground flaxseed and water mixture.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Mix in Vocoa cocoa mix. Add to wet mixture.

Step 5

Add chopped walnuts (optional).

Step 6

Spoon into mounds on baking sheet two inches apart.

Step 7

Bake in preheated oven until edges are firm (about 8 - 12 minutes). Transfer to cookie sheet and allow to cool.

Variations

  • If bananas are very ripe, you can use less sugar.
  • For healthier cookies, applesauce can be substituted for oil.
  • For dryer cookies, orange extract may be used instead of orange juice.
  • For chewier cookies, bake for 8-10 minutes and allow to cool on cookie sheet for 3 - 5 minutes prior to transferring to cooling rack.
  • For gluten free cookies, substitute a non-wheat flour (such as almond or rice) - just be sure to follow package directions for proper substitution ratio.
